Summary:
Tried about half a dozen of the so called "all mountain" skis at the beginnig of the season and a pair of 180 cm Head Super Cross Ti was an easy purchase to make. They are good and work just the way you want them to do in various conditions if you like to ski, like I do, both on the slopes and off-pist. Very stable at high speed turning and grips well on icy conditions. Works also good both in powder and groomed snow due to mid-fat waist. Of course all of these "all mountain" skis are always a compromise but who wants to carry 3-4 pairs of skis with them in order to have one for the slopes, on for bumps, one for powder etc.. ? In the Head Super Cross Ti you pretty much find all the qualities in one ski. It's anyway, as in all sports, at the end upto the skier how they work...

Summary:
After trialling many other skis in an attempt to replace my ageing Elans, I came across these skis in Courchevel. I'd tried loads of other skis including the X-Screams, but couldn't see what all the fuss was about.

The Super Cross Tis are a dream to ski. Whatever you throw at them, they handle with ease. Within 5 minutes I was grinning like an idiot as turn after turn linked perfectly. Just put these beauties on edge and they turn - and they do it with style. They'll cut through even the worst crud as if it were corduroy.

Can't fault the ski, it's improved my skiing dramatically. Price is a bargain - paid £300 including some top Tyrollia bindings.

Thanks to Roger at the (British-run) Francis Blanc Sports in Courchevel 1650 for the recommendation - best shop and best service in the Alps - i.e. no miserable, unhelpful French staff!

Summary:
I ski on x scream 190 and just demoed the above 5 today and the Super cross Ti just jumped out as the best ski today on hard pack and frozen powder rumble on steep pitchs.They just made me giggle; so smooth in the junk,fast turns and great edge hold on the hard stuff.The 10.20 were great but very touchy for younger legs than mine they just snap around. I also tried the monsters from head very similar the tips were alittle softer. I had never tried Heads before and could not believe the rides I had, made my X screams feel like noodles and I like my x-s. The Heads have real edges, a wood core and carbon titinium layers try them and you to will giggle.

Summary:
This is one serious ski. I picked these up a couple of months ago after demo skiing almost every other Mid-Fat on the market (see above). Of all the skis I had tried I found these to be the most versatile. The ski is a dream in Powder and packed crud, while still able to carve and hold an edge on the grooms or crust. It is also rather a surprising ski in the bumps. I recomend getting a riser plate installed with your bindings to allow easier turning as well as shortening up on the length, I went from a 193 carving ski to a 180 and am very happy with my decision. Like all Mid-fats its not the best ski out there in any one catagory, but performs amazingly well in all of them. This ski will allow you to ski the entire mountain (and then some) so you don't have to take two or three pairs of skis with you. In short these are the Best Mid-Fats out there.
